Sent off an e-mail to the Sierra Marde folks and got this back...excitement is rising!

The expected release for the 2nd edition expansion, called High Frontier Colonization, is June 2013.
The new expansion will contain everything the old expansion had: an updated expansion map, updated expansion cards.
Below is a copy from the High Frontier Colonization rules outlining what is new.


14.2 WHAT'S NEW?
This game contains the second edition High Frontier expansion, and also adds four new modules, five new operations, and two new movements.
• Megawatt Era. The High Frontier game initially plays per the legacy expanded rules, except that more card types are available to research, more operations and moves are available, and a new Sunspot Cycle is used to generate events instead of the triangle burns. This phase of the game is called the Megawatt (MW) Era.
• Gigawatt Era. When the number of factories specified in 7.3 are built, score and record victory points per 7.1 and 7.2. This ends the Megawatt Era, and starts the Gigawatt (GW) Era.

A. FOUR COLONIZATION MODULES. Each module contains its own card type: Freighters, Bernals, Colonists, and GW Thrusters. Each forms its own deck during Set-Up, allowing you to operate ever more independently from Earth. You can add one or more of these modules to your High Frontier expanded game.
• The Megawatt and the Gigawatt Eras play using the same rules, depending on which modules you select. The only special rules for the Gigawatt Era are listed in 14.7.
• Freighter Module. These give you a second spacecraft for hauling cargo and allowing your factories to move or be digitally transported.
• Bernal Module. This is an orbiting space colony, a mobile upgraded version of orbiting water depots where your wealth and colonists are accommodated.
• Colonist Module. These hardy pioneers allow you to perform additional operations each turn, according to their specialization.
Note: If you use this module without the Bernal Module, then instead of dirtside hydration use combined factory hydration to determine colonist limits per 2f0.4.
• Gigawatt Thruster Module. GW Thrusters are 1000x more powerful than the legacy megawatt thrusters, allowing rapid transport of colonists to sites as distant as the TNO's (Trans-Neptunian Objects).
B. FOUR NEW OPERATIONS. Recruit (16.2), Activism (16.3), Suffrage (16.4), and Tax Collection (16.5).
C. TWO NEW MOVES. Digital Swapping (17.2) and Beam-Rider Pushing (17.3).

Additionally, there will be likely a set of new glory cards.

Also they had one request:
Be sure and rate Pax Porfiriana on BGG as this game remains under the Radar.

So if I have the base game, this will replace and add to all the existing expansions? Is that right?

That's the current plan. This is still in playtesting, so I imagine nothing is final at this stage.

Will we get stickers to make any necessary corrections to the board if we bought a poster map...?

I have no inside information but I would say there is zero chance of this. First, the number of people with the poster map I believe is relatively small (200 according to BGG). Second, people have different sizes and materials of the map which would require different size stickers. Third, there have already been several versions of the map with no 'upgrade' path between them other than a sharpie.

There is mention of there being included the base game expansion that is no longer available. My question would be is this, IF you already have the base game and that expansion will there be a copy of this product without it. In other words, if you order this directly from the publisher will the option to just pay for the components to High Frontier Colonization be there?

. I expect the production quote in a few more days. The difficult decision on how to package and sell Colonization will be made and I will accept preorders. Colonization
Will be an expansion containing all the updated components of the first edition expansion. The rules emphasize as few exceptions to the legacy game as possible. Because of logistics the optional components (including special wood pieces for freighters, outposts, and Bernal Spheres will be sold separately.
